Dual Track Hot metal mixer. Part 2

After I got the trucks pretty wall the way I wanted them I turned to the rest of the car. it is built out of 1" PVC couplings, end caps and adapter. The turning mechanism was made from cap that came from eggnog. In the above picture one can see where I had rebuilt the trucks with a space wide enough the cradle would fit between the ingot buggies.

With both cradles pretty well done I redid the spot to the car and use a Walthers hot metal spout. Really like how it looks but thing about changing it out with a ST&D spot. Changing the spot also shorten the car about 1".
